Here we have a German job abroad post with a twist - Today folks we have a new German speaking job in Krakow as a Product Support Analyst. Working in this German IT Job means that you will be earning 10,000 zloty gross per month (which is above average).
But that got us thinking - maybe people don't know what it is that 10,000 zloty can get them - after all Poland does not deal in Euro so you might not know how much bang you can get for your buck.
10,000 Zloty Breakdown:
10,000 zloty per month can get you - more that 2 tonnes of bananas or more than 4,000 litres of milk. Not a milk fan? perhaps cheese is more your thing & 10,000 zloty can get you half a tonne of it.
All jokes aside, we thought it would be a good thing to know how you can live like a King/Queen in Poland for this salary. Depending on your personal circumstances of course you could be looking at coming home with 7,000 zloty per month (if you are single with no children) - If your curcumstances are different you can calculate how much you will bring home with -> Calculla.
Where could you live?
Property Krakow has some great places online we found:
This 3rd floor, 4 bed, 2 bath apartment for just 3,900 zloty per month and its only 1 km from the city center - what a steal. Of course if that doesn't float your boat, you could save some dough and check out this 2nd floor, 2 bed, 2 bath apartment that is only 2km from the city center & is 2500 zloty per month.
You can always look into buying a car to jet around the city but to be honest it would probably be quicker and cheaper to take public transport - this way you can avoid trtaffic jams in rush hour, you wouldn't have to worry about finding a car park space and of course there would be no worry about the overall wear and tear of the car itself.
Public transport in Krakow is very good, you don't need to worry about delays - A monthly ticket would only cost you around 90 zloty - which is certainly much cheaper then getting a car outon the road.
Eating out OR Eating In?
If you like eating out how does eating at Introligatornia Smaku sound? A 3 course meal of:
- Beef tenderloin with onion, pickled cucumber, wild mushroom, quail egg yolk, anchovies and capers

All for 88 zloty (That's about €20)
